Today Belmont Primary School successfully completed their Annual Sponsored Walk to benefit this years Charity of choice for the school. (Last year we benefitted from the kindness of the school) The walk started from Belmont School, taking the Wrights Arms track to Winter Hill Summit, dropping down to Coal Pit Road, across to Horrocks Fold, then down to Longworth Clough before returning to Belmont School.
As with previous years, all four of our Land Rover Mountain Rescue Ambulances, with 12 team callout members, were out in the area, available to support any walkers who got in to trouble, and meeting all the walkers at the many road crossings and on the moorland tracks of their route. Thankfully our services were not required.
As ever the walkers consisted of keen pupils, ex-pupils, parents and staff, and were joined for their walk by former team call out list member Paul Brain, who also walked the entire route.
The team is pleased to help Belmont Primary School with their Annual Walk and looks forward to next years event.
